Wimbledon gets first taste of rain

Wimbledon is getting its first drops of rain at this year’s tournament.

After the hottest day in the grand slam tournament’s history on Wednesday, temperatures were cooler and light drizzle started shortly before play was set to start on Thursday.

Covers were pulled over the outside courts, while the roof stayed closed on Centre Court.

Play on outside courts was set to begin at 11:30am (2030 AEST), and no announcement had been made about whether matches would be delayed.
